In previous studies, we showed that the chemical and dynamic properties of fish and mouse MTs (metallothioneins) present a number of distinctive differences linked to their primary structures, and that phylogenetic relationships of mammal and fish MTs correlate with their three-dimensional structures. The different behaviours of MTs may also be linked to… CONTINUE READING
